honda CRF1000L Africa Twin DCT

Back

Adventure at heart

Named after the Dakar-winning NXR750 machine, the CRF1000L Africa Twin is not just for touring and off-road excursions, it’s a strong everyday bike too.

The call of the wild
When you hear it, be ready.

The Africa Twin is the perfect companion and will go anywhere with you – town or country. It has Throttle By Wire that comes with 3 ride modes and on DCT models, there's an additional G mode for going off road – plus a host of other innovative, new engine components to take you further than you’ve ever gone before. The mighty CRF1000L is ready when you are.

Make tracks
Don’t let the end of a road stop you.

There’s nothing that can hold back the CRF1000L Africa Twin, or you for that matter. Take it through town, escape for a weekend ride or a touring holiday – with a bit off off-road thrown in of course. Whichever you choose, this motorcycle is equipped to take you anywhere. How far you want you go, is entirely up to you.

High visibility

The new, rally-style LCD instrument panel position has been revised to allow the rider to see all ride modes and information clearly at a glance, night or day, on the road or on the dirt, even from a standing position.

Looking good to go

The sharp and focussed features of the Africa Twin, integrates super-bright, twin headlights with full LED lighting and a bright tail stoplight at the rear. The LED indicators have a new warning stop function in case of a hard stop. In an emergency, they’ll flash to warn road users behind.

Suspension that works for you

You get excellent performance and control from the 45mm SHOWA cartridge-type inverted front fork. They have a stroke length of 230mm and are accompanied by the Showa rear shock, which allows 220mm of axle travel; both are fully adjustable with rebound and compression damping.

Pipes and power

The revised 2 into 1 exhaust system not only sounds good, as you roll on the power and increase the revs, it looks good too. Combined with a modified airbox on the intake side, the mid-range response is better than ever.
